Multi-purpose Makeup for Quick Morning Routines

I don’t know about you, but I love to sleep. I love curling up under my big, down comforter every night and not emerging until I’m well rested. I’m a big believer in the snooze button, and I use it pretty religiously every morning. Unfortunately, I also like to look my best, and rolling out of bed and not putting any effort into my appearance isn’t really an option for me.

To combat  this conundrum, I’ve taken it upon myself to employ the best multi-purpose makeup I can get my hands on. I’m all about cutting corners and combining steps if it’s going to let me sleep in later, get out the door quicker, and still get to work on time. See a few of my go-to products below, and don’t forget to share your tips and tricks in the comment section!

Urban Decay B6 Prep Spray

Priming is a crucial step that’s easily overlooked, which is why the Urban Decay B6 Prep Spray is such a lifesaver. The spray is infused with vitamins and also reduces redness, minimizes pores, and absorbs oil. Meaning, not only does it add nutrients to your skin (yay!), it also preps your skin for makeup. With just a few quick, easy spritz, your face will be glowing and ready to go.

Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions BB Cream

Say goodbye to bad skin days. BB Cream is your friend when it comes to getting ready quickly and efficiently. While there’s a number of options for quality skincare/makeup combos, the Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions BB Cream is surely a standout. Applying with your fingers or a damp makeup sponge, the product conceals imperfections and doesn’t cause breakouts. It also contains SPF 40, which is super important. As mentioned in our recent article on skincare, you should apply sunscreen everyday. Using a multi-purpose makeup product, like the Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions BB Cream, is a great way to improve your daily look and lifetime complexion.

Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek Tint

A lip/cheek duo is kind of the epitome of multi-purpose makeup, right? Killing two birds with one stone, the Milk Makeup Lip and Cheek Tint is ideal for a lady on the go. Easy-to-apply and available in a variety of shades, the Lip and Cheek Tint is made from mango butter, peach nectar, and avocado oil. It’s also buildable, blendable, and smudgable, making it a great product for a quick morning routine or after lunch touchup.

Glossier Balm Dotcom

As the name implies, Balm Dotcom is seriously awesome. Created by Glossier, this universal skin salve can be used so, so many different ways. From chapped lips, taming crazy brows, and moisturizing patches of dry skin, Balm Dotcom is a great tool to have. I know there’s a lot of products out there that claim to be able to fix all the aforementioned problems, but, in my experience, this one really does it. I like to apply it first thing in the morning then throw it in my purse for periodic touchups throughout the day. If you’re feeling a little more wild, Glossier also offers this popular product in a few different flavors/tints. I’m personally a big fan of the cherry one.
